Ingels, Chauncey Clarkson

Chauncey Ingels Died Wednesday
     Chauncey Clarkson, youngest son of Jasper C. and Emma Gilbert Ingels, was born in Green Township, Gallia County, Ohio, on February 6, 1891, and passed away at Gallipolis, Ohio on Wednesday evening, February 8, 1922, at 7:45 o’clock.
     He received his education in the Gallipolis Public Schools, leaving the High School in 1909 to attend the Columbus Business College. In 1910, he enrolled in the Ohio Mechanics’ Institute at Cincinnati to study architecture, finishing this course and graduating in 1915.
     In 1914, he was united in marriage to Miss India Watkins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward J. Watkins, at that time living in Bidwell but now residents of Columbus. To this union was born a son, Edward Jasper, now in his seventh year.
     In 1916 Mr. Ingels located in Columbus, accepting a position as paymaster with the Carnegie Steel Company, which position he held until incapacitated by illness. He was a member of University Lodge of Masons and also of Camp Chase of the Modern Woodmen Lodge, both of Columbus.
     Mr. Ingels is survived by both parents, three sisters, Mrs. C. H. Booton, Mrs. Phillip Kling and Mrs. Marvin Cornwell, all of Gallipolis; and two brothers, Bert Ingels of Herndon, W. Va., and Clyde C. Ingels of Gallipolis.
     The funeral services were held at the home of his parents Friday evening at 7 o’clock by Rev. Morrell of the Methodist Church, followed by the Masonic ritual burial service under direction of Morning Dawn Lodge of this city. Interment was made Saturday morning in Mound Hill cemetery.
     Many friends deeply regret the passing of this splendid young man. Quiet, courteous and affable, he made friends of all with whom he came in contact, and his young widow and son, parents and other relatives have the sympathy of all who knew them.

Ingels, Edna [Carter]

OBITUARY
     Mrs. Edna Carter Ingels, wife of Truman Ingels, died in White Cross hospital, Columbus, O., Monday evening, March 22, 1926, in her 26th year of life.
     She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Carter of near Patriot, Ohio. Beside those mentioned she leaves three sisters, Nellie and Jessie at home, and Mrs. Verdie Brown of Marysville, Ohio; Three brothers, Earl of Gallipolis, Virgil of Northup, and Cecil at home. Many other kindred and friends who share in a great loss.
     The writer of this sketch has known Edna all her life, and remembers her as a precious and lovable child. As she increased in years she did not lose the charm of her childhood but grew in favor with all who knew her. Her mind was extraordinary bright and her ambition knew no bounds. She spent some years in public school work with excellent success. She was a student at Rio Grande College and Ohio University specializing in music and had almost enought credits for graduation in that course. In recent months she had been employed by the Z. L. White Company of Columbus.
     Seven or eight years ago she publicly declared her faith in God and purpose to live a Christian life she united with the Patriot M. E. Church remaining faithful to death.
     Edna was a jewel, the luster of which shed a hallowed and gracious influence upon all with whom she came in touch and especially those who knew her best. Her span of years were comparatively few but her life was full and complete.
     It is not four score years, but character and conduct which make a complete life. They live longest who think most, feel noblest and act best and by this we measure her life and call it complete. She closed her eyes upon a world of tribulation to open upon a world where sorrow and disappointment can never be for the Lord hath said "There shall be no pain, no tears, no death." In this premise we committ her body to the earth. In this promise we expect to join her spirit in that eternal home, the soul.

She was esteemed as a high type of Christian womanhood, as a capable and devoted wife and mother and home-maker, and a loyal supporter of causes she deemed worthy.

Ingels, Everett Clair

IN MEMORY
     Everett Clair Ingels, eldest son of Bert and Lizzie Ingels, was born June 6, 1891. He became a member of the M. E. Church at Clay Chapel at eleven years of age under the ministry of Rev. H. F. Prior. He entered Gallipolis high school at the age of thirteen, completing his school work and graduating in 1910.
     During his high school years he spent much time in preliiminary pharmacy work. He spent one year in the College of Pharmancy at Indianapolis, Ind., and one year at Ada College of Pharmacy, where he graduated in 1912 on his 21st birthday. He passed the state examination for a registered pharmacist when he was barely of legal age and accepted a position at once at Carey, Ohio. He later went to Cleveland where he was manager and registered pharmacist in a large drug store, and which place he was occupying when illness took him from his work on July 10.
     Mr. Ingels united in marriage with Miss Hester Stahl of Carey on Jan. 25, 1915, and leaves a noble young wife to mourn for him. Besides his wife, his parents, brother Truman, sisters Frances and Mildred, he leaves a host of relatives and friends to whom he was very near and dear.
     He was a noble Christian young man, to whom life was dear, yet when he knew a dreaded disease held him, he was reconciled to leave his dear ones here to go to his Heavenly home. He took great comfort in having those about him read the blessed promises in the Bible to him, and to offer up prayer for courage and comfort in the hour of need.
     Though the Reaper has taken this flower in the springtime of life, and his dear ones are borne down with grief, yet they are blessed in the assurance that he was prepared for his Heavenly home which awaited him. He was loved and respected by all who knew him; was a devoted husband, son and brother, a loyal friend, and his life a pure, noble Christian one. His spirit went to receive its reward of such a life on Sept. 29, 1915, at the home of his father-in-law at Carey, Ohio.

Irion, Amanda Florence

In Memory
     Amanda Florence Irion, daughter of John and Caroline Perkins was born October 26, 1859, departed this life August 10, 1927, aged 67 years, 9 months and 14 days.
     She was united in marriage to Charles W. Irion on September 19, 1883.  To this union five children were born, Roy and Frank of Eureka, O., Mrs. Virgil Thevenin of Amelia, Iowa; Mrs. Charles Harrington of Green Township; Wayne of Ambridge, Pa.; who with her husband survive her, also fourteen grandchildren and one brother, besides a host of friends and relatives.
     She united with the church at Ohio Chapel under the pastoral work of J.R. Fields.  While her health never permitted her to attend church as she liked, she cheerfully remained at home that her family might go.  Her life has been one of sacrifice and devotion.  She loved her friends and loved to meet with them and these meetings she held as sacred treasures in her memory.  She will be sadly missed in the home and place where she lived, and well may we say:

A precious one from us is gone,
   A voice we loved is still,
A place is vacant in our home
   Which never can be filled.

Irion, Billie Bradie

IN MEMORY
     Just as the sun was slowly setting in the west on the evening of Jan. 15, the beautiful young life of the infant son of Frank and Sadie Irion passed out to the Great Beyond.
     This darling babe came to life on July 10 and was christened Billie Bradie. This home was brightened as the little bud grew into a smiling little flower. Everyone loved the sweet face and winning smile; but for only awhile until sickness overtook the little form and all that loving hands could do was done; but God wanted to transplant this young flower in the Garden of Paradise at the age of 6 months and five days. He will be sadly missed by his parents, grandfather; sisters, Frances and Grace and brother Kenneth.

Little darling we will miss you,
We will miss you most of all.
But in Heaven we hope to meet you
When the Saviour in Heaven shall call.

Card of Thanks
     We wish to thank our friends and neighbors for the kindness shown us during the illness and death of our darling baby and brother; also to Rev. Miller for his consoling words, the singers, to those who gave flowers and to Undertaker Stevers for his efficient service.
                    Mr. & Mrs. Frank Irion and Family.

Irion, Charlotte

On the Death of Mrs. Charlotte Irion of Northup, O.
     Mrs. Charlotte Irion, was born in Cortland, New York, Feb 19th, 1830, came to Gallipolis, Ohio in November, 1864, was married to John Irion on Nov. 15th, 1857, died April 4th, 1883, aged 53 years one month and 15 days.

Oh! ‘tis hard to lose our friends,
Go put them from our sight,
And walk the weary ways alone
Without their lending light,
And natural, too, that we should grieve
And think no other’s woe
Is half as deep, and dark as ours,
And wonder why ‘tis so.

Yet God wills not that we should shut
Ourselves from out our kind,
And in our own pure selfishness
Our greatest solace find.
He wills that we should look to Him
For light to lead us on,
And see outside the boundary bars
There’s much that may be done.

But ah! ye cannot call her back
Dear friends; your tears are vain.
Her eyes are closed, nor will they open
To earth’s vain things again,
But though on earth she lives no more,
In heaven she liveth ever
And ye if faithful soon shall meet
Where naught—fond friends can sever.
E.

Irion, James

     James Irion died at his home near Clipper Mill, Ohio, January 4, 1893, and his remains were interred at Clay Chapel on the 6th. Grandfather Irion was born in North Carolina, July 1808, and was brought to Gallia County when an infant; he was married to Mary Trotter, in 1822, who still survives at the age of eighty-three. The subject of the sketch was an exemplification of contentment and happiness throughout his long life. His ambition was not of the sort that seeks wealth or honors; the greatest desire with him was to make everlasting friends of his fellow men.
     The only legacy he bequeaths to his children is their recollection of his kindness as a parent, and the rigid morality that distinguished him in every scene of his career. Borne of a sturdy German parentage, he never knew what sickness or pain meant till about a week before his death, when an attack of soar [sic] throat together with the weight of years brought on his demise.
     It is not known that he ever united with any church, but the enduring love of his posterity and those who knew him best, testifies that "Grandpa" Irion deserves a home inside the pearly gates with the patriarchs of old.

     It was a sad wave of sorrow that swept over the over the community when the tidings came that the spirit of Alice had gone to the God who gave it. Alice was loved by all who knew her.

She has gone to her mother, who preceded her to that better land, less than a year ago.

   Dear Alice, thou hast left us,
    Here thy loss we deeply feel;
    But ‘tis God that hath bereft us,
    He will all our sorrows heal.

    Allie sleeps, but not forever,
    There will be a glorious dawn;
    We shall meet to part no never,
    On the resurrection morn.

     Daniel was the next oldest of 11 children, and he was born Sept. 10, 1847. On Oct. 1, 1869, he married Margaret Humphrey of Eno, the nuptial knot having been tied by Squire Robinson. She and the following children, in addition to Mrs. Buie, survive: Mrs. Claude Kincade, Jackson; Mrs. J. W. Ballard and Mrs. Mary Coolville, both of Columbus; Bert Irwin, Le Mesa Calif.; Spencer Irwin, Los Angeles, and Emmett Irwin, Hubbard, Ohio. Mrs. Jerry Grover of Morgan, who died a few years ago, was another daughter.
There are two surviving sisters; Miss Irene Irwin of the Children Home's staff and Mrs. Ella Rees of Columbus.
     Mr. Irwin was a member of the Campaign Baptist church and was highly esteemed by all who knew him.
     Funeral services will be conducted by Rev. J. L. Stephenson and Rev. R. R. Denney at the Bidwell M. E. church at 2 o'clock Wednesday. Burial in Clark Chapel cemetery by J. L. Coleman. The Irwin home at Jackson is on the Route 35 entrance to the city and just a short distance this side of the railway tracks crossing the route.

Irwin, Edward S.

Death of E. S. Irwin
     Mr. E. S. Irwin, of Charleston, W. Va., died at the above city Saturday of last week.  Mr. Irwin was born in this county and was well and favorably known here.  He was a brother of James, John, and Capt. Dave Irwin, of this city and county, and a brother-in-law to Capt. John H. Nevius.  The Charleston Gazette says:
     "On Friday he seemed to rally some, and it was the hope of his physicians to eventually bring him around all right, but during the latter part of the night he seemed to to be somewhat restless, and at 7:45 o'clocok yesterday morning he arose in his bed and asked for a glass of water, but before it could be given to him, he fell back and died instantly from heart failure.  In the death of Mr. Irwin Charleston loses a prominent and honorable business man who never did anyone a wrong.  His hand was always open and no one who asked a favor or aid ever went away empty handed.  He had the respect and esteem of everyone, and now that he is gone many a tear of sorrow will be shed for Uncle Ed who was everybody's friend. 
     Edward S. Irwin was a son of David and Mary F. Irwin, and was born in Gallia county, Ohio, June 6, 1827, and was married to Elizabeth A. Nevius in Cincinnati, Ohio, April 2, 1874.  In 1871 he became a resident of this city and served six years as a member of the City Council.  At the time of his death he was in the livery and sale stable business.  A wife and three children survive him to mourn their loss.  The funeral services will took place Sunday forenoon.  If death be sleep, the awakening of E.S. Irwin will be a sweet one in the morning, and if those for whom he did a kind act in life were to lay a rose on his bier his bed would be a wilderness of flowers."

Irwin, Edward S.   [no cemetery entry]

The Late E. S. Irwin
From the Charleston Star Tribune
     The busy world takes but little note of one, however prominent and successful in secular affairs, however much of popular esteem he may have enjoyed, when he disappeard from his accustomed sphere. There are, however, a few men, the influence of whose lives who survive them, and make the world better for having been among men. Our deceased friend is a shining example of this truth. Such is the fragrance of his memory, that the name of Edward S. Irwin is breathed by all who knew him with a sigh of deep reverence and respect; for we all have loved him while he lived and will cherish his memory always, aye, until our own summons come to join him.

“In that mysterious realm where each shall take
His chamber in the silent halls of death.”

     He was an honest man, a kind and generous man, an earnest, considerate, tender, manly man, and in all genuine qualities and attributes, he was in the truest sense, a gentleman, and we shall rarely look upon his like again. The writer knew him well, and loved him, and with a host of friends shares a fond memory of him, his faultless, cheery, brotherly nature. It is impossible that he could have had an enemy, for he cared more for others than he did for himself. Without pretense, he despised hypocrasy, and in his life so strove for the happiness of others that his reward must be great in the world into which he has entered, if there is one beyond this. His adoration of his devoted wife and children, so well known to all, was but another proof of his gentle soul, while his pride of his little home circle was a beautiful shrine erected in his heart, and he loved to speak of this idolatry. Though he left his tenement of clay months ago, a city full of people feel his loss, and it is doubtful if the loss of any citizen would awake a sense of more sincere regret.
     Mr. Irwin was the son of David and Mary Irwin, and was born in Gallia County, Ohio, June 6th, 1829. His early manhood was passed in farming. He came to Charleston in 1862 and for many years engaged in mecantile pursuits, when he entered into the livery business, the most popular in that line, in which he was engaged at the time of his death. He married Miss Elizabeth Nevius, of Charleston, April 2nd, 1874, who with three lovely children survive him.
     We trust, with full hearts, that their irreparable loss will rest upon his loved ones, in the conselonsness of his glorious virtues, as gently as the peace which falls upon the face of the dead, for whom they are not premitted to grieve alone.

Irwin, Julia F.

     Miss Julia F. Irwin was born in Springfield tp., Gallia Co, O., April 19, 1859, and died in the same house in which she was born January 24, 1883, aged 24 years, nine mo, and five days. She was the only daughter of Capt. David and Jane Irwin. Three brothers are left to mourn the departure of their beloved sister – Alpheus E, editor of the Charleston Leader, Charles A. and Elmer D.
     She had been in delicate health for about five years; had been confined to her bed about seven weeks. On Sunday the symptoms became alarming, but a change for better was notable on Monday. The change proved to be transitory. She grew worse rapidly, and Wednesday at half past seven p.m. she passed away without a struggle. Her brothers were dispatched for, but arrived too late to see her alive.
     The funeral took place from the house, Saturday at 10 o'clock a.m. by Rev. Geo. J. E. Richards; text, John xi chapter, 15 verse;" I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe, nevertheless, let us go into him" the remains were interred at Bethel Cemetery.
     The early part of her life spent in Gallipolis, where her parents moved for the education of their children. After her health began to fall they return to the farm near Porter, where she died. Julia will not only be long remembered by her many friends for her beauty and accomplishments, but also for the generosity of her heart shed abroad in the community in which she left. The gentleness of her manners and friendly disposition won for her many friends. Her sun has set in the morning of life. How true that "life bears us on like the current of a mighty river." It has born from our reach one dearly beloved by all him she met. By her upright and honorable character and exemplary life she is worthy the esteem of every young person, and that while we mourn the loss of so worthy a friend from our community, yet the calm and peaceful resignation manifested by her during her sickness assures us that our loss is her eternal gain, having left this vale of tears for that brighter and happier home above.

Isaacs, Ann [Perry]

DIED
     August 8, 1895, Mrs. Ann Isaacs, wife of Daniel Isaacs, of Wales, this county. Mrs. Isaacs, whose maiden name was Perry, was born in this county in 1846, and spent her early days at the old homestead. She was married about the year 1870, and until the time of her death, resided on a farm near Wales. Many years ago she commenced suffering with diseased bone of one of her limbs, and for a time it was so painful that in 1882 she went to Cincinnati to receive medical treatment, and was benefited to such an extent that she has since been able, part of the time, to walk without the aid of a crutch, until a few months ago the limb again grew worse. Her case was a hopeless one with only one chance,--that of amputation.
     Drs. W.D. Hamilton and W.H. Knauss, of Columbus, and Dr. Howard, of Parkersburg, came in Wednesday night to perform the operation. She had grown very weak and fears were entertained that she would not recover from the effect of the opiate. The operation was undertaken Thursday morning, the limb being removed at the hip joint. She recovered from the effects of the opiate, but the shock ws so great to her system that she passed away about 3 o'clock in the afternoon of the same day.
     Deceased was an excellent woman, with affection and the respect of all,and enjoyed the friendship of a large circle of friends. She leaves to mourn the loss of a loving and affectionate wife and mother, her husband and five children, two boys and three girls. She was laid to rest at the old cemetery at Nebo Church, Saturday at 10 a.m.

Isaacs, David

Physician Dead
Dr. David Isaacs, Native of Gallia County, Died in Omaha Late in June
     We have received the following from Mrs. Thomas Reese of Columbus, relating the death of her brother, who will be well remembered here by many relatives and friends:

     Dr. David Isaacs, the son of Daniel and Anne Isaacs, was born in Gallia county, Ohio. At the age of 18 years he removed to Nebraska. After receiving his degree in medicine in Omaha he praticed his profession for a few years. He then went abroad and remained for several years, specializing in diseases of the eye, ear, nose and throat.  He served for a time as house surgeon in the London Throat hospital and Royal London Opthalmic hospital. Late he returned to Omaha and established an office there. Surviving Dr. Isaacs are his widow, a brother, I.E. Isaacs of Iowa City, Iowa, and three sisters, Mrs. L.O. Evans, Twin Falls, Idaho; Mrs. Thomas Reese and Mrs. David Hughes of Columbus. 
     The following obituary notice is from Edwin Hast Jenks, D.D.,Pastor of the First Presbyterian church at Omaha: "On Wednesday, June 29, it was my sad privilege to conduct funeral services over the remains of a Christian gentleman, a distinguished physician and a dear friend, Dr. David Isaacs. The services were held at the home of his wife's parents, Mr. and Mrs. I. Doolittle, in Omaha, Nebraska. In that same room a little more than eight years before I was privileged to join the young couple in marriage. During these years together the ties of love and affection continually grew stronger. Their home life was ideal. Both were skilled in music, and, with their friends in their own home they shared in that enjoyment.
     Dr. Isaacs was a man of quiet dignity.  He was always scrupulous in dress, rather reserved in manner, correct in speech, and upright in all relations.
His illness was of short duration, and with even his splendid physique he was not able to rally from a serious operation.
     He was much beloved by his family and friends, and respected by his profession.  At his funeral some of the most distinguished physicians and surgeons of the ciy were present to pay their respects.  Of him I would like to repeat what one doctor told me of another some years ago: "He not only held high rank in his profession, but he made good as a man."
     While the people of this city will feel the loss of such a citizen, and friends one from their inner circle, to his loving wife, and brother and sisters it is a tragedy.  He was in the prime of life, the picture of health and growing influence.  I write these few words of appreciation that the friends around his old home may know that one of their sons has won an honorable place and a good name out in the world."
